Sarah Palin, would you please shut up?

Your phony concern about men who joke 'about public displays of sexual exploitation of girls' is just that, phony.

If you were concerned about the exploitation of our children, male or female, you would not have run all over the country with your winking and your inane bullshit doing everything in your power to set back women's rights 100 years. If you were concerned about our children, you would not be so quick to deny them the right to a better PUBLIC education, sex education, or birth control. You certainly would not have put your pregnant 17 year old daughter in the public eye as much as you did, spoke so lovingly about her future husband and then turned your back on him.

I do not understand how the people of Alaska elected you governor. I do not understand why John McCain picked you to be his Vice-Presidential candidate. I do not understand why you can't just go back to Alaska now. Letterman apologized. You accepted.

AMEN! Altho' I am conflicted about her visibility. It keeps her in the forefront of progressive minds as a potential "leader" of the GOP.

But at the same time, every time I see her smug face on tv I want to find the nearest sharp object and repeatedly jab myself in the eye with it.

Hope things are going well.

It was fatal. Palin unexpectedly got an overdose of fame and applause, and now I don't think there's a prayer of her staying in Alaska as long as planes keep flying back and forth from there. Not having anyone better, a number of Republicans see her as being a viable choice in 2012, and she has to keep seizing on anything she can to keep her name in play. It's almost a life and death thing with her, psychologically speaking..

Who pays for those flights to and from Alaska?

I'm waiting for her to apologize to me for making my gender look stupid.

The sad thing is I know people, intelligent, educated people (women!) who think she is the bomb. Thinks she is the best thing that has ever happened to Alaska (they live there) and can not wait until she runs for President.

My only joy is that, historically, the previous,losing VicePresident has never turned around and won an election (if I am wrong,leave me my delusions). So, hopefully, she will fall on her face even more spectacularly than she did last year.

hi, LLL-- I found you over at Morning Martini.

I have a guess as to why McSame picked her. He wanted to lose.

The accepted wisdom at the time was that whoever won would get booed off the stage for not being able to repair the results of an 8-year crime spree in 4 years.

So, the party powerful picked a doddering fool who couldn't run again [would leave the rest of the pack intact to try again in 4 years] and a devoid-of-brain twit to stand beside him.

McSame was smart enough to know what was happening. Palin wasn't.

Just my take on the joke that was the last election.

Two crows, valid points. I have often wondered if he wanted to lose. Either way we are stuck with her for a while and maybe it is better that way. The stupider (I did that on purpose people) she looks, the less chance she has of getting elected in 2012.

I hope. Dubya was elected twice.

I agree.
If she had a brain, she'd be home doing as good a job as she can for Alaska. And studying so that, the next time she is asked, "What magazines do you read?" she won't look like a deer in the headlights -- and stammer.
Luckily for us, she is doing what she's doing instead.

Stay in the limelight, Sarah. Keep picking stupid fights.

I LOVE Sarah Palin. I don't know why but seeing her fight with a late night TV talk show host just fills me with glee.
She is a class act. Please don't go away Sarah because then I will have no one to laugh at.
